      From what I understand (from other articles), the Mirror hacking was under Piers Morgans watch.

      Be interesting to see how this pans out and how much media attention it gets. The cynical side of me thinks that there is a bit of a witch hunt by the media and politicians for the Murdoch's at the moment as he was too powerful.

      I hope i'm wrong as it would be awful to think that that is how our government and media are run. Let's see who really is that corrupt. The reallity is that probably all of the press media are corrupt, as are some politicians and some police.

      There may well have been a Witch Hunt for Murdoch, but sadly it appears that he left the doors wide open for the inevitable complaints.

      Come on - the USA has opinion polls to help the President decide what to do. I'm sure that the UK has something similar.

      As for politicians being corrupt - Yawn! Anyone want a Duck Pond cleaned?

      The Police however will unfortunately have a few individuals who are going to be open to bribes. Sadly this minority will cause us to examine them more closely. I have dealt with them in the past at a high level and I am sure that this is not the case with them all.
